Interstate 80 East
Eastbound Interstate 80 around Milepost 260, just west of the junction with southbound Nevada 306 (Exit 261) to Beowawe and Crescent Valley. Photo taken by Dominic Ielati (05/00).
Nearing the settlement of Emigrant at the Exit 268 folded-diamond interchange on Interstate 80 east near Emigrant Pass. The exit provides no outlet into the surrounding areas. Photo taken by Dominic Ielati (05/00).
Eastbound Interstate 80 around Milepost 284, just east of Carlin. Some sections of Interstate 80, such as this one, demonstrate how the freeze-thaw cycle can damage a roadway. Here, the concrete pavement is buckling and in need of repair. Photo taken in 1998.
Interstate 80 eastbound passes through a 0.25-mile long tunnel east of Carlin. The freeway crosses over the Humboldt River ahead of the west portal. Another pair of tunnels is present much farther to the east on Interstate 80 in Green River, Wyoming. Photo taken by Dominic Ielati (05/00).
Interstate 80 eastbound on the approach to Nevada 225 (Mountain City Highway) at the city of Elko. Nevada 225 travels 100.353 miles south from Idaho 51 and Owyhee to Business Loop Interstate 80 & Nevada 535 (Idaho Street) west of downtown Elko. Photo taken 09/09/05.
A diamond interchange facilitates the movements between Interstate 80 and Nevada 225 (Mountain City Highway). Use Nevada 225 south to Idaho Street (old U.S. 40) east for Nevada 227 (Fifth Street / Lamoille Highway) to Spring Creek and the Ruby Valley. Nevada 225 travels 83 miles north to Mountain City otherwise. Photo taken 09/09/05.
